Chriiis commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

@LAA Agreed. It's obvious trying to please everyone will solve nothing, so they should just pick out ones that they feel could actually blend well with their intentions.

However, why do I smell an excuse to practically imply 'to hell with fan ideas'? It's shocking to see support in favor of basically tossing fan ideas, as a general thing, in the trash.



Chriiis commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@Redxzero My sentence was not contradictory as that is not what I meant by 'different'. By different, I mean that we pretty much live in a time where we are told that we are straight from the get-go(thanks TBD) and this can cause us to grow up and to try to just brush off the development of other feelings(ex: attraction towards same gender), not realizing that those same feelings could possibly be our real and intentional feelings.

When they further develop and really start trying to make it obvious where you are with them, that big slap in the face later could make it seem like a different 'where'd this crap come from' sort of thing. They were always there but you grew up thinking they weren't/shouldn't be.

Looks like we'll just have to go our separate ways on this, as it is getting pretty off topic.

Back on topic, I'll probably still read reviews to see how things pan out.



Chriiis commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@Redxzero Actually, if you read what I posted, you'd see I went further to clarify what I meant by that. I gave reasons why such as people's feelings being held back or not pushing out for various reasons(being taught they are wrong and to force them out of your mind, suppress them, etc.). It is internal conflict that is usually not brought up because of said situations and will lead to people trying to trick themselves in believing they are something they are not, until the feelings develop further and enough to where they realize that simply shoo-ing them away will solve nothing.

The 'should' is meant for those in a situation like I described; for many, they are that way from the start but have it crammed down their throat that they are 'abominations' otherwise so will try to fight it and make it go away, not realizing that it's not really going anywhere.

Once again sigh, the fact that you(as you even pointed out yourself) are just nitpicking one thing out and judging the rest of my post off of that shows that you honestly aren't wanting to discuss this reasonably.



Chriiis commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@Redxzero I'm talking about internally. While you are indeed born the way you are, some people's feelings haven't quite...pushed their way out, you can say(?) until later.

At the same time, a lot of people are brought up to believe such things are wrong, from a young age, therefore tend to be taught to suppress them as well. As they develop and get stronger over time, that is what I mean as well about it being brought to light. As an example, a guy who is actually bisexual could be taught to believe liking other guys is wrong and will try to force himself to only have interest in girls and live as such(and believe he's straight). When his feelings develop further and his attraction to guys as well becomes more obvious, now he is caught in a crossroad as to what is true and what is not(is it just a part of who he is making itself known or some 'evil' working on him?).

That is questioning, because he is put in a situation to where he may not (at first) understand what is going on.



Chriiis commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@Redxzero The questioning term is more to allow those to explore should different feelings be brought to light and not feel like they have to hide or toss them aside just because you are told they are wrong, if you ask me.

Think about it; In society, generally, we are still brought up to pursue the opposite gender from really young years. When you throw in the fact that people against lgbtq will teach said kids that it is wrong as well, when the kids' true feelings are being brought to light, etc. that can cause them to do everything possible to suppress those feelings and that can be a very damaging thing to bottle up. As an example, take note how some lgbt people end up in 'false' straight relationships/marriages and how it just eats away at them more and more everyday, over possibly years, about living such a huge lie. In the end, it'll just hurt them and their supposed loved ones, greatly.

Questioning is more about figuring out where you really are should signs point that you need to. It's about having the freedom to do so rather than being forced to feel like you can't.

@navonod18 As stated before, there is a difference between a game like this and others you listed.

Both Mario and Zelda games, you're playing through Mario and Link's eyes, respectively, not yours.

As for Pokémon, it is more of a reflection of yourself than the above but you aren't pursuing relationships or anything so there's not much to get riled up over, in regards to this at least. The attraction move is probably more for the challenge/competitive aspect than anything(as in, being able to attract all would defeat the purpose) and it's applying to the Pokémon, not you. Have you seen the anime though(at least earlier seasons)? There have been some...questionable characters.



Chriiis commented on Nintendo Shows Off Upcoming Golden Sun and F-Z...:

@Zyph Hell, the entire soundtrack is just amazing(for both original games, though Dark Dawn had some good themes, too), especially considering the GBA was what they were on; I even have a playlist of my favorites that I listen to all the time.

The Golden Sun games were my absolute favorites, next to RSE, on the GBA and arguably among my favorite game series altogether. I can play the games over a bazillion times(and I have) without getting bored. Phenomenal soundtrack, great story(though the lengthy chatter may put some off; I personally find it to be part of the charm), great combat system, etc.

The Golden Sun series(specifically the original two) is simply a masterpiece. Instant 10/10 in my book. :)

Still waiting on the next game which should hopefully be in the works for 3DS!

A shame that only the first is being released on VC at the moment. Knowing how horrible the VC schedule gets, who knows when The Lost Age will arrive. :x



Chriiis commented on Features: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Spri...:

@JaxonH Those two bits of my post weren't necessarily connected(at least in that way), the second analog is for other reasons.

I wasn't exactly demanding they add such an option either, it would just be pretty helpful really. Said games that use the CPP do benefit from it it seems, as games like KI:U(this especially; was a nightmare to get used to. Anything with similar stylus controls in the future could use it as well; have noted from others that it could benefit things like FPS), MGS and RE:R prove. Yeah, not the biggest selection (yet) but it could serve well as handhelds become better in the future.

Of course I use the left slider(there are plenty of games where such a thing is far from crucial), just don't see why some are so hellbent against having the option when it would pretty much only do good.

Yes, there are instances where you have to adapt with your non-dominant hand(in my case, right) but that didn't stop left-handed tools from being brought out. (Damn those right-handed scissors in Elementary school! Aha.)



Chriiis commented on Features: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Spri...:

@JaxonH Oh, I wasn't talking about now(seeing as the CPP isn't really supported anyways, it wouldn't serve much purpose, especially this late in the 3DS' life).

I agree with rjejr though and would hope for a handheld to come with a second built in when it comes to next gen, regardless of whether it will be compatible with the console in a control sense.

Luckily I've played through the games that I wanted already with those bothersome controls(in a left-handed perspective >_>)...



Chriiis commented on Features: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Spri...:

@JaxonH Looking back at #134 and your latest comments, so you now see how 2 analogs/sliders/whatever would benefit the handheld?

@rjejr Being left-handed myself, I did find some games to be particularly annoying to get used to without an alternative(haven't cared to buy a CPP XL up to this point, honestly, for various reasons), so I feel you back on #139.



Chriiis commented on Tomodachi Collection: New Life Tests Western W...:

@RaReRuX Hmm...I guess it depends on why they really aren't buying it. They could be lacking interest now for personal reasons(like obviously not being able to marry, for one, haha).

On the other hand, considering the situation that surrounded this, I don't think it was something to like raise hell over ya know, so I wish the game well in that sense. I'll at least be checking some reviews out.

No hard feelings. :)



Chriiis commented on Tomodachi Collection: New Life Tests Western W...:

@RaReRuX ...and that makes you smarter for making such a comment just because someone may not be interested now how? >_> -smh-

I'm not gonna be starting some riot but, should the option not be there, I too will have less of an interest in getting this.



Chriiis commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:

@noctowl ...because, knowing them, who knows when the heck it will arrive(likely will take years). If they were able to confirm it to be later this year or something, that'd be one thing.

I bet plenty of people could also be swayed into picking them up if they were able to get the whole story in one go.



Chriiis commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

@ashfoxx Well you need a CC(P) to play N64 on Wii, so I wouldn't mind buying an add-on to play them on-the-go on 3DS(if possible to get them running well).

Like another poster said above, once they have this kind of system in place(and better the pricing), I'd probably buy a much larger portion of VC games, if not all of them.



Chriiis commented on Interview: Takashi Tezuka on Bringing Yoshi's ...:

Pretty amusing when all you hear 24/7 is people blabbering away about how graphics don't matter, yet a lot of people are stomping all over this game because they don't consider it to be the prettiest ever.

The game looks pretty charming(as Yoshi tends to be) to me so I will be buying it anyways.



Chriiis commented on Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Taking a Couple...:

Darn it and this is one of the 3ds games I've been looking forward to most of '14 so far...well polishing things up is always better than rushed, as has been said before, but still sad to see a delay. ): Have been waiting since I finished Risky's Revenge.

Can't wait for Half-Genie Hero either. :)



Chriiis commented on It's Not Waluigi Time In The New Super Smash B...:

@BAGBOY Isaac definitely is a fit as a NEW character rather than a million more characters from series that already have enough representation(I'm talking about Dixie and others who'd probably be more clone-like anyways); Psynergy could make for an interesting move set. Grand Gaia final smash? :P

@Xtremetdifan How dare you forget Shantae?! She should be near the top, if not first, on that list you have(seeing as Peach is already in), since she is the main character of her own series. D: Also could have a great moveset and would be better for a new female addition.

I'm also with everyone who is up for a Waluigi spin off series. The guy, like someone mentioned above, is unique enough to pull off one in possibly a darker and more sinister way.

@whodatninja He sure is, lmao.



Chriiis commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:

@EmpoleTRON Is it not okay to not be interested in the game now or something? >_<

Where did I imply anyone was weird? I basically said that this isn't my type of game and told those who do like it to have fun.

I could have just went onto some long 'sexism!' rant like others but I think the so called harm is a bit exaggerated myself, as I see nothing really wrong with it.



Chriiis commented on Diddy Kong Confirmed as the Latest New Challen...:

As far as new characters go, I don't get why everyone wants to add 5 million characters from each game we already have enough represented for. I'd rather have some new characters from games not currently represented that are pretty much Nintendo(similar to Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer)

As @Bryon15 made note, I'd love to see a Golden Sun character make an appearance, highly likely it being Isaac(Grand Gaia as FS?).

I think Shantae would also be a pretty interesting addition considering Pirate's Curse is coming out this year on 3DS and we are also getting Half-Genie Hero on the Wii U in the future.



Chriiis commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:

@sinalefa I agree with you. Physical over digital any day of the week because of numerous reasons like you listed: you can trade, sell, lend to a friend, etc.

Along with that, you can actually be safe that the game stays in your hands(so long as you take care of it), and, as games get bigger, internet speed makes it an absolute nightmare to download stuff.

As someone also stated above, little eshop games are fine to download, but retail games are staying physical with me.

@unrandomsam Yeah, Amazon is fine, plus I have a couple game stores a reasonable distance away.



Chriiis commented on Game Boy Advance Titles To Hit Wii U Virtual C...:

@TheRealThanos Well I didn't mean specifically for the N64 titles but rather it made them playable. The ability to use original GC controllers is a decent idea(isn't there an adaptor somewhere somebody got to work?).

Yeah, I'd rather wait to see how things play out before going crazy with GBA purchases because I would rather them on the 3DS. GS is one of my favorite series so I'll probably make an exception in that case. XD

Maybe we can get Drill Dozer as
